FEATS OF THE WEEK: Senior T.J. Conley of Walla Walla, DeSales became the second prep quarterback in Washington state history to surpass the 10,000-yards passing mark for his career during a 41-6 win over Cathlamet, Wahkiakum in the Class B-11 semifinals. Former DeSales passer Brian Lindgren, now at Idaho, threw for a state-best 12,575 yards in his career.

Dray Mason scored a state-title game record five touchdowns to lead regionally ranked Indianapolis, Chatard to a 49-0 romp over Nappanee, NorthWood and the Trojans' third consecutive Class 3A state title. Chatard has won 37 straight games over Indiana foes and its only loss this season came on the road to No. 12 Cincinnati, Elder.

Regionally ranked Kearney, Mo., routed St. Louis, Ladue, 43-0, for its second straight Class 4 state championship. The 14-0 Bulldogs won its games by an average margin of 46 points this season and in every contest they invoked Missouri's 35-point "mercy rule," which calls for a running clock in the second half.

Regionally ranked Redford, Catholic Central became the first Division 1 team to win three consecutive Michigan state championships with a 24-16 defeat of Utica, Eisenhower. The Shamrocks have now won eight titles in 14 seasons and nine overall.
